We are in the midst of blizzard conditions here in the Boston area, so what better way to spend a housebound day than writing and taking photographs through my snow-encrusted window? The last news report claims we already have over a foot of snow in my area and we are not even halfway through the storm! And as if that weren’t impressive enough, Brian actually walked over to the studio this afternoon to paint!
I’ll create a longer more thoughtful essay later this week, but I just wanted to share these photos, fresh out of the camera, and also thank all my followers, old and new, for such a warm response to my last post. I have never been called brave and beautiful by so many people whose opinions I actually trust! It’s a good thing I have decades of low self-esteem to counterbalance this great outpouring of compliments or I would surely be walking around with a swelled head!
Thanks to all of you, I’m going to continue my project of self-portraiture and see where it leads. It’s a whole new way for me of looking at my photography, its purpose and potential. So, many thanks to all for such a favorable response towards this initial effort. One of the photos appeared as Number 89 on Ria Vanden Eynde's awesome blog The Body Nothing Else, recommended to me by dear friend Monica. I urge you to check out both these wonderful sites. And now, in the interest of furthering one of my New Year's intentions to sometimes be quiet and let images speak for themselves, here are more snow photos. All the best to each and every one of you, but especially those of you in cities dealing with the ravages of Mother Nature at her most destructive, and the effects of human nature at its worst.
